Hart, Elizabeth (Lizzie) (1852–1926)

Mrs. Elizabeth Hart, who died at 576 St. Kilda road, Melbourne, on November 6, was a daughter of the late Hon. Edward Cohen of Clarendon, East Melbourne, and of his wife, who was the daughter of one of the oldest Jewish families, the Benjamins. She was a sister of Sir Benjamin Benjamin. She was 74 years of age. Her husband, Mr. Alfred D. Hart, one son, Mr. Rupert A. Hart, of Melbourne, and three daughters, Mrs. Julius Benjamin, Mrs. Harold Brasch (both of Melbourne) and Mrs S. S. Cohen (Sydney), who is the second daughter, survive her. Mrs. Hart was a very unostentatious woman, very charitable, and will be missed by many. The funeral, which was a very large one, took place at St. Kilda Cemetery on November 7.
